The images of Max Vadukul, a self-taught British photographer, are recognized for their signature creativity and originality. His work regularly appears in magazines such as Italian Vogue, L’Uomo Vogue, Men’s Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Vanity Fair, Rolling Stone, and Interview. Discovered by Yohji Yamamoto in 1984, while living in Paris, Max quickly gained praise as a brilliant image-maker. Upon moving to New York City, Max began collaborating with The New Yorker, this was only the second contract given to a photographer, second to Richard Avedon, in the magazine’s 100 year history. Max is, as well, currently working for Rolling Stone and on personal projects either through photography or film.

“"The Man with the Suitcase” is a story about a traveler who is eccentric and a bit of a magician. It is about the times when I was a kid in Africa and seeing passengers getting on and off steam trains with suitcases ...we all want to know what is in a suitcase, and when more than one person is looking at the suitcase, your curiosity is aroused; so then the “Mago”, as I call the main character, lives in an eccentric house in Antwerp and has a weird collection of puppets, but the best are his human puppets, so you have to wait and see the film  to watch the art unfold ...

This is my 3rd film for COMING SOON and the most complex one yet, working with the talented Rain Li as Director of Photography added softness and dream to my reality. ‘’
